Lagos Commercial Bus Drivers Begin Seven-Day Strike
Written by Olarotimi Oshin on October 31, 2022
The Joint Drivers’ Welfare Association of Nigeria has said it will commence its seven-day strike in Lagos State today as it was unable to reach an agreement with the state government.
The group, in a statement by its lawyer, Ayo Ademiluyi, said it had been subjected to indiscriminate extortion and violent harassment by the management of parks and garages in the state.
The group alleged that its members lost half of their income to motor park ticketing, stating that they got arrested whenever they refused to pay for the tickets.
